The journey to global prominence

16-17 January 2020, Noida, India

What is the THE  India Universities Forum?

The inaugural Times Higher Education India Universities Forum will bring together leaders from higher education, industry and government to Amity University in Noida to discuss some of the current key challenges and opportunities that universities on the sub-continent face.

At the THE India Universities Forum we’ll examine current collaborations and future opportunities for Indian universities to build close working relationships with international faculty, students and postgraduates whilst also exploring the best models of internationalisation in the broader Asian context, and how Indian universities can emulate such associations.

With best practice examples and contributions from industry and government representatives, we’ll also discuss how higher education institutions can best develop an entrepreneurial outlook to attract industry research income.

Additionally, at this forum, we will examine how universities can drive the agenda to become key players in innovation ecosystems, by establishing and stimulating collaboration between researchers and partners from industry, business and external organisations.

A data masterclass will examine the latest Times Higher Education data on the performance on Indian universities and provide an in-depth presentation on the rankings within an Indian context. We will welcome an open dialogue on the most effective methodologies and the impact of international rankings on higher education development in India.

Join us for this vital forum on the future of India’s universities.
